Guide to Heart Patient


Introduction

This page is for the patients undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG).

This page attempts to explain the cause of the disease, the risk factors, the effects of disease and possible treatment options. It tells about the surgery, preoperative preparation and postoperative care in hospital and at home. Lastly, an effort has been made to spread preventive awareness about the coronary artery disease. For better understanding, at the cost of technical perfection, language has been made as simple as possible.
